Competition Info & Rules
A fun and friendly competition set with our customers in mind on our La Sportiva Competition wall.
Everyone will compete on the same 20 problems.
Each problem has a pre-designated starting position, consisting of two fixed positions for both hands and optionally two fixed positions for both feet. Starting holds will be clearly marked.
Brushes may be used by competitors to clean holds that may be reached from the ground. Other holds may be cleaned by competitors as long as there is no tactile inspection of the holds.
This competition will be slightly different to normal. You will be able to try the problems as many times as you like, to attempt to complete the problem during the competition times.
Each problem will be broken down into sections. Points will be awarded for how high a competitor gets on each problem.
To claim a top of a problem the top hold must be held with 2 hands, in control.
10 points will be awarded if a competitor gets to the top of a problem on any attempt.
There will be 1 bonus point awarded if a competitor flashes the problem.
There will be numbers next to selected holds on each problem indicating how many points will be awarded for holding those particular holds in control.
Each competitor can only claim points for the highest scoring hold they reach for each problem, with a maximum of 11 points being awarded if the problem is flashed and 10 points if it is topped on any go after a flash go.
